Biostatistics is one of the scientific fields for which the developments during
the last decades of the 20th century have been the most important. Biostatistics
is a pluri-disciplinary area combining statistics and biology, but also agronomics,
medicine or health sciences. It needs a good knowledge of the mathematical background
inherent in statistical methodology, in order to understand the various fields of
applications. The idea of this book is to present a variety of research papers on
the state of art in modern biostatistics. Biostatistics is interacting with many
scientific fields. To highlight this wide diversity, we deliberately put these interactions
at the center of our project.
Our book is therefore divided into two parts. Part I is presenting several statistical
models and methods for different biologic applications, while Part II will be concerned
with problems and statistical methods coming from other related scientific fields.
This book intends to provide a basis for many people interested in biostatistics
and related sciences. Students, teachers and academic researchers will find an overview
on modelling and statistical analysis of biological data. Also, the book is meant
for practicioners involved in research organisations (pharmacologic industry, medicine,
food industry,..) for which statistics is an indispensable tool.
